    Uncanny sunk in the mud so Freefall could soar.

The funny thing is, to me, the X-Men's past periods of bleakness look darker and Rosenberg's looks brighter (the color palate between Fall of the Mutants vs. Rosenberg, for example), but there was just no dramatic weight to anything in the Rosenberg run, too. Too senseless and too numbing to care about.
    I didnt. I enjoyed Rosemberg's interviews prior to Phoenix coming out bc his passion showed that he was a true fan but that mini disappointed me adn every other book after that disappointed me. He starts well with good #1s bc he has good ideas but he can never stick the landing.. Its shocking how much power he was given that year

    I found the early preview art promising. I don't remember how many issues I read, but yeah, I couldn't finish it. I wasn't enjoying it like I hoped. 1/5

    I voted 3 stars because I enjoyed his Astonishing X-Men and Astonishing Annual.

    It's to bad about the trans-panic and suicide stories he tried for in Uncanny. I know that he meant well in trying to address these issues, but they could have been handled better. It drug his Uncanny down for me.

    I didn't really mind all of the deaths that occurred in Uncanny. I enjoy what is referred to as misery-porn and grim dark by those who don't care for those kind of stories. And, the deaths didn't matter anyway, seeing as how Hickman was already planning to resurrect those characters.

    So a mixed bag for me.

    I do feel bad that he couldn't right his follow up mini to his first New Mutants mini. I liked that comic.

    Whether or not it was Rosenbergs fault doesnít make the book any less bad. The book is the book.

    Don't care for it. And he stopped Jean Grey's return from being a big, huge, celebratory thing. I give him no stars, really.

    It's not as terrible as the fan consensus has deemed it but its first half was super bad. That original crossover and leadup to Age of XMan sucked ass.

    BUT... the remaining part of it was VERY grim and gritty and well that's what I like! It felt almost like a parody or caricature though because it was over the top and so compressed but hey I still got decent vibes off of it. In particular the stuff with Emma Frost in her role as actual leader of Hellfire Club (not the crap they have her doing now where it's just a way out for her character ethically and it means NOTHING) was very fun for me. It had some insane events happen and well yeah, sure it was "too much" with the deaths but some of them were rather exciting and dramatic at least. Overall I'd say first part is a 3/10 or so, just too generic traditional and boring for me, second part especially once Emma/Hellfire got into the mix was a 6 or 7/10.

    2/5
    The beginning was interesting, I have nothing against the image of suicide and other counterversial things. But in the end it was just bad. Thank God Hickman took matters into his hands and gave Emma some love.

    The thing is, Rosenberg is capable of making good comics. Freefall, Tales of Suspense, Secret Warriors, are good. Not excellent but good. He is not Chuck Austen.

    So you can't explain why he makes a comic as bad as Chuck Austen.

    Rosenbubble's run sucked, and it feels bad to say that. Iirc, in one of Hickman's interviews, he acknowledge the lack of effort by the x-office(or something along those lines) due to numerous factors (implied to be the lack of movie rights) which was especially true for Rosenburger's UXM run. In Roseberger's interview, he mentioned he was going through a low moment in his life while writing UXM, and UXM helped him process through whatever it was. Kudos to Rosenbimby, but there's also a reason why most professionals (and by this, I'm not narrowing the scope to just creatives, but also doctors, lawyers, etc) apply for leave when they go through a tragedy.

    In the end, the run was filled with cheap deaths, edginess for edginess' sake, one-note shock factor--- and absolutely zero consequences once Hickman stepped in. It became filler-- a placeholder until Hickman got his story beats sorted.
    Let your wallet talk.

    Never forget, Cyke fans~ https://twitter.com/i/status/1246248602768486402

    When will Logan call out Jean for drafting children in her X-Squad?

    You'd think the WatXM staff are clear hypocrites for supporting The Crucible~

    Hickman is building towards AvX 2.0 but, this time, the X-Men are actually the villains~

    Hilariously, the X-Men have now fully embraced Magneto's philosophy of mutant supremacy XD

    The only thing that slightly connects Hickman's and Rosenberg's runs is the death of Blindfold. I don’t know if it was a plan or just a convenient coincidence.

    Hickman no doubt asked that Blindfold die.

    What is completely unnecessary is to make her death a suicide as graphic as Rosenberg decided.
